Not too long ago, My parents bought me a new digital piano, I have just recently gotten audio cables to hook it to my computer for recording. Two of the things I played on it to test the sound are (small parts of) a couple of well known Queen songs that I plan to cover very soon. So, I figured I'd share my little tests (demos if you will *chuckle*) with my fellow queen fans! Just click on the link, Then right click and 'Save as...' on each of the files. Enjoy! :D

P.S. Don't expect perfection, They're only tests. ;)

Nice playing, Dan. But there is some funny noise in there. Rattling or something. I heard it when I turned the volume up. You didn't get cheap cables, did you? Get that cleared up before you go to any serious effort recording. I leared that one the hard way...

Samples from my digital piano, which I have shared before:

Yeah, I know what you mean. I only bought the cords to hold me off until Christmas when I get some decent equipment. These were just to give me a rough idea of what it would sound like.

How are you going to do the rest of the instruments?

I was thinking of covering Hammer to Fall myself, but there's just so much music to learn and record...oh yeah, and, like, going to work and stuff ;) I'm pretty wrapped up with my Beethoven project at the moment, as you can see.

Plus, I think I'd like to do "Good Old Fashioned Loverboy" first. There's some nice piano in that song.

By the way, Dan, what kind of digital piano is it?

My piano is a Casio PX-300. I am thinking of doing just piano and vocal for the song. If not, I'll use the piano for drums and bass.

So Dan, you love a lump of plastic with wires and circuits inside..........

Should R2D2 start worrying? ;-)
